I remember when this was announced about a year ago I thought it sounded like a potentially intriguing espionage thriller. Comingsoon.net now has the trailer and synopsis via iTunes, and while it looks decent, the trailer seems to give virtually the whole film away.
On a personal note, as a Castle fan it's disappointing to see Stana Katic's role appears to be a small one.
Directed by Michael Brandt and written by Derek Haas and Brandt (the duo behind Wanted, 3:10 to Yuma and 2 Fast 2 Furious), the film stars Richard Gere, Topher Grace, Stana Katic, Stephen Moyer, Martin Sheen and Odette Annable.
In The Double, opening in theaters on September 23, the mysterious murder of a US senator bearing the distinctive trademark of the legendary Soviet assassin "Cassius" forces Paul Shepherdson (Gere), a retired CIA operative, to team with rookie FBI agent, Ben Geary (Grace), to solve the crime. Having spent his career chasing Cassius, Shepherdson is convinced his nemesis is long dead, but is pushed to take on the case by his former supervisor, Tom Highland (Sheen). Meanwhile, Agent Geary, who wrote his Master's thesis on Shepherdson's pursuit of the Soviet killer, is certain that Cassius has resurfaced. As Shepherdson and Geary work their way through crimes both past and present, they discover that Cassius may not be the person they always thought him to be, forcing both to re-examine everything and everyone around them.
